Why doesn't XFCE4 set itself to french when I select Language French in my
GDM login screen?... That's another variable?

And How & Where do I set this LC_ALL string? Can I do it in the .xinitrc
from the XFCE4 directory???

(I'm at job... That's why I didn't try anything right now... And if
someone could answer me today, It'll cut my testing time tonight!) ;)
